Luxshare-ICT, a supplier of consumer electronics brands, a selected USound, a specialist in MEMS speakers-based audio solutions, as its strategic MEMS speaker supplier.

USound will supply MEMs speakers for the company’s new ultra-compact hybrid audio module for its dual-driver true wireless stereo (TWS) earbuds.

Dual-driver solutions are in high demand as brands aim to improve the audio experience in true wireless stereo products. Hybrid or dual-driver earphones integrate two micro speakers into one earbud to deliver improved bass and clear vocals.

Combining Luxshare-ICT's and USound's technology, this new hybrid audio module overcomes current true wireless earbuds challenges in terms of audio performance and form factor.

The new hybrid ultra-compact audio module is said to achieve excellent audio performance, reproducing natural vocals and deep, immersive bass. As a result of the ultra-small form factor of the module, personal audio products can be more ergonomic and further miniaturised without compromising audio quality.

The module also features an amplifier and MEMS microphones making it a ready-to-use solution for modern true wireless stereo systems. 

With a $24 billion revenue and 172 thousand employees, Luxshare-ICT is the supplier of major global consumer electronics brands.

"Cooperating with Luxshare-ICT is another milestone for the adoption of MEMS technology in the audio industry. With this ultra-compact hybrid audio module as a ready-made solution, hearables manufacturers can accelerate production and deliver high-quality personal audio products," said Ferruccio Bottoni, Co-founder and CEO at USound.

The new ultra-compact hybrid audio module will go into mass production in 2023.
